On June 23rd at the Hampshire Pool, 83 WOW swimmers put forth an outstanding effort against the Cheverly Dolphins (CSR) in another very close meet. WOW jumped out to a tight lead of 10 points after the Medley relay events. The lead, however, changed hands several times during the individual events with WOW only 11 points ahead going into the final relays. CSR placed 1st & 2nd in the Mixed 8 & Under relay to jump ahead and hold off WOW for the win by 1 point: final score CSR 278 / WOW 277. While a disappointing loss, 62 swimmers and 2 relay teams recorded improved times, our DQs dropped from 40 to 16 (a 60% improvement) and we scored 2 more points than last week.
Coach Greathouse said “The entire team showed tremendous improvement and all out effort throughout the entire meet up until the end. This shows that every athlete, every event, every heat and every turn matters. We may have lost by 6 last week and a single point this week but we will be in full force at divisionals. Awesome job by all swimmers!”
